House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was "essentially right" with her comments about the lack of influence that far-left Democrats, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, are having on the party, ex-Speaker Newt Gingrich said Monday. 

"I think you're beginning to see the bloom come off of the excitement the Democrats had after they won last year," Gingrich told Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo. "Speaker Pelosi, who I think is essentially right in this argument, is really faced with some people who are virtually crazy, and she doesn't know what to do with them."

In an interview with The New York Times' Maureen Dowd, Pelosi downplayed the influence wielded by Ocasio-Cortez and fellow Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley.

“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world," Pelosi said, "but they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got."

Gingrich said Monday he thinks Pelosi will continue to engage the four freshmen, and they will counter attack, and that poses a major challenge for Democrats running for president. 

He also doubled down on his criticism of Ocasio-Cortez' complaints about the border situation. 

"She knew it was dishonest," said Gingrich. "It weakens the United States...the person that captured the current mood was Willie Brown, the brilliant former Speaker of the House in California who knows Kamala Harris very, very well and he just wrote a column that said based on those first round of debates, there is nobody running who is going to beat Donald Trump and I think that should sober Democrats."
